NXR range questions - deeper cabinets? Hot door? Ignition coil?
We got our new NXR range yesterday and installed it today. I posted some pictures here. It looks great and seems to function properly. We're currently running the oven to burn any manufacturing oil off. It stinks.
So I have a couple questions.
In our current kitchen, the range is sitting flush against the fairly thick tile backsplash, maybe 1/2" from the wall. There are little nubs on the back, though, so I suspect it wouldn't go back much farther if it could. As it is, the front of the door is about 3" in front of the front of our cabinet face frames. The back of the door, or really a seam on the side, is about 1.25" in front of the face frames. The front of our cabinet overhang is about even with that seam, or the back of the door. It looks like it's sticking out. Has anyone else considered ordering cabinets an inch or two deeper so that it lines up better? Are other "pro style" ranges equally deep?
It's a little unusual of a circumstance, probably, but after running the oven at 500 for 30 minutes and the broiler for 30 minutes before that, nearly all the exterior surfaces of the oven are too hot to touch. The stovetop between the burners, the oven door, the backsplash (obviously), the trim piece under the door, the trim piece behind the knobs. I can't get a good temp reading with my infrared thermometer--too shiny--but I'd guess they're all in the 200 degree neighborhood. The bottom of our microwave/hood is pretty hot too, but not as hot as the oven.
I have kids, 1 and 4, but I can teach them not to touch it. They're used to radiators. However, do I need to worry about a fire hazard? Are the sides against the cabinets that hot too? Is my oven "broken" compared to others?
Finally, I noticed when running the broiler for 30 minutes that the ignition coil never turned off. Is that normal? My dryer has one that shuts off right after the gas lights.
Thanks for any insight.
